Pinot Noir from Sta. Rita Hills, Santa Barbara, Central Coast, California
A complex and forward wine that begins with red raspberry and cedar notes on the nose that leads to rich brambleberry flavors. The mid-palate is dense with flavors of rhubarb and white pepper. A touch of dry cocoa and vanilla, along with a bright red-fruit finish completes the flavor profile.
Delicate and complex, this lengthens out nicely, with a mix of underbrush and dried berry flavors supported by firm acidity. The rich finish features dried meat and cedary accents, revealing some creamy hints.
